Bus driver responds to parents

Posted: Updated:

A Waterloo school bus carrying 38 grade school students was in an accident earlier this week.

Some parents said they were upset with how the bus company, Durham School Services, handled the accident.

Some even went so far on our Facebook page as to say the driver should be fired.

Thursday, a fellow bus driver said that’s not fair.

"You have a parent wanting a bus driver's job,” said bus driver Becky Orvis. “It's like, she had an accident. I understand they're upset that their children were on the bus. I understand the parents must have been terrified, but at the end of the day it was still an accident."

Orvis was not driving the bus involved in the accident, but said the things being said about it upset her.

She also said accidents like this upset drivers as well, since they often grow close with the children.
